Simmons was employed by Douglas Aircraft in 1952, as were famed California modern designers Ray and Charles Eames. Simmons’ planing hulls are functional examples of aerodynamic form being used as a central element of mid century modern design. Al Nelson went on to use these forms and materials to design the Dragon Fly personal aircraft, which won the prestigious Oshkosh aeronautics show in 1980.
